Vitamin Boost: Counselling and Care in NP

Perhaps you have been feeling stuck for some time and you thought of speaking to a close friend, Mentor or Advisor. You have also heard of Peer Helpers and your school's Para-Counsellors and wonder who you should approach.

You hesitate as you think your problem sounds silly and you don't want anyone to know about it. It's also feels lousy to have to ask for help. You want to try to work it out yourself, but the problem seems to stick and it is increasingly upsetting.

In such a situation you may find it helpful to consider a counselling session with NP Counsellors. 

Our promise: Counselling sessions are confidential. Your counsellor will listen to you without judgement and journey with you.

NP Student Crisis Helpline

External Counselling Service for Students

Some of you may have reservations about confidentiality, or wonder whether your student records would be updated.

NP Counselling & Care would like to assure you of confidentiality. Also, student records do not reflect counselling information.

Having said that, NP understands that you may prefer to approach an independent and external counsellor instead.

Hence, NP offers you such an alternative, fully paid for, for up to three sessions.

Hopefully, with this initiative, you will get the necessary help that you may need.

Do note that, with the evolving Covid situation, The Therapy Room may adjust their counselling services to go fully on-line.

It's OK to Seek Help

Have you ever felt like you needed help but was hesitant to ask for it? Did you feel like you would be seen as "weak" by others? Did you think your own friends might ostracise you for seeking help?

It is 100% okay to take things at your own pace and seek help when you feel comfortable, but we are here to let you know that it is okay and important to speak up and seek help.
